Unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens, wine can also be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of tastings, glasses, bottles, batches, and accessories from Casavino Winery in Fountain Hills.
Casavino combines winemaking expertise with fresh New and Old World juices to create up to 40 boutique batches of winy goodness. Indecisive oenophiles can catch a $5 flight of any four wines from about two dozen options before honing in on that one special bottle to escort home for the evening. Tasters tempted to enjoy a longer palate-pleaser can order by the glass. Fruity and blush wines such as the crisp green-apple Riesling ($4 per glass, $13 per bottle) and winsome whites ($5, $16) and reds ($6, $18) form the standard grapey lineup with varieties from Italy, Argentina, California, and Captain Nemo's undersea vineyard. Dual monocle-wearers can sample a higher plane of the vine with reserve whites ($7, $16) and reds ($7, $18), such as the Woodbridge chardonnay or ruby cabernet, or specialty wines ($6, $18), such as the decadent, white-chocolate-infused port and ice wine. There is no corkage fee for whole bottles swilled within the winery's walls, so feel free to kick back and sip with a few friends or awkward co-workers.
Bulk buyers can even pick up custom batches and half-batches for weddings, graduation parties, corporate events, and unauthorized lock-ins at the elementary-school cafeteria. Batches include at least 28 full bottles of blushes ($285), whites ($345), and reds ($385), and are overseen by Casavino's talented production team. Today's deal can also augment an up-and-coming sommelier's arsenal with accessories and glasses.
This deal is not valid for custom wine batches or labeling.
Casavino Custom Winery
Though Casavino Custom Winery carries up to 40 of its own wines at any given time—including blackberry, shiraz, and white-chocolate port—its main attraction is giving patrons the ability to make their own. During the winemaking experience, visitors sample the winery's many vintages, then decide which variety they'd like to ferment under the guidance of an expert winemaker. Budding sommeliers even create their own label design with help from an in-house graphic artist. The experience culminates in a group tasting for family, friends, and wine glasses over the age of 21, an event which occurs in a tasting room lined with barrels and jugs of busily fermenting wine.
